Warning – digital niceness on new Gregory Isaacs reissue

R-2452229-1284833631.jpegJapan’s premier reissue label Dub Store Records releases another stellar set from the vaults on King Tubby. This time it’s Gregory Isaacs’ chilling Warning, an album where he has joined forces with King Tubby and The Firehouse Crew for a moody and sombre excursion.

Warning was originally released in 1990 on the Serious Business label and it’s partly computerised with dubwise mixing and blazing live played horns by Dean Fraser and Don Drummond Jr.

It collects masterpieces like album opener Long Sentence and Once a Man, a skilful digital version of the mighty Fade Away riddim.

The Cool Ruler as laid-back as always tackling the dark riddims. The eerie artwork actually sums up the mood pretty well.

  1. Love Gregory Isaacs, any music he puts out posthumously is a reminder of his unfailing imprint on moden rocksteady/loversrock.
